LeBron James’ “personal goal” to surpass Michael Jordan’s legacy is not achievable, according to his former teammate and good friend Dwyane Wade.
Wade says all that LeBron could ever hope for, is to be on par with MJ someday.

D-Wade and LBJ won a couple of NBA titles together in South Beach, and the former thinks James’ third championship pushed him up considerably in the G.O.A.T. rankings:
“No, it’s not possible,” Wade told ESPN with a laugh. “It’s not possible.”
“The only thing you can do is tie it,” Wade said. “There’s no 19th hole.” […] The golf reference came about after Wade was reminded of a 2012 interview with ESPN in which he used a golf analogy to compare James to Jordan.
Four years later, Wade’s stance hasn’t changed much. […] “I think last year — not only in my eyes, but in a lot of people’s eyes — really put him … he’s on the 15th hole right now,” Wade said of James. “And he’s on his way, for sure.”
